Setup Menu

Another new sight on a Sony digital camera is the dedicated Setup mode, taking some of the less often changed settings away from the record menu and putting them away in a dedicated menu makes a lot more sense and allows for greater flexibility and expansion later. A welcome sight. The menu itself is split into three categories:

Setup: Camera

Expanded Focus Selects expanded focus mode:

On (camera magnifies center of frame in manual focus mode)
• Off
Moving Image Selects the movie image format:

MPEG Movie (320 x 240, 320 x 240 HQ or 160 x 120)
• Clip Motion (Animated GIF @ 160 x 120 or 80 x 60)

Digital Zoom Enables / Disables digital zoom:

Bracket Setup Selects bracketing mode exposure step:

Today I was comparing one of my first digital camera (F707) with my latest compact camera (RX100 M3) ,aside from resolution the quality of images produced by this two gems are so identical (in good light indeed) . So have we really needed to upgrade our Camera every one or two years to take better photos ? (Thank you SONY anyway , Your engineers doing their duty well)

The Sony F707 was my very first camera, which I purchased way back in June of 2002. Although today (3/2015) I own newer DSLR cameras from Nikon (D200 & D7000), I still love using the Sony F707. After all these years, it continues to deliver excellent image quality...and it has significant sentimental value to me. I just recently purchased a second used F707 on eBay to have as a backup-backup camera in the event that my original F707 quits on me. I wish Sony would produce an F727? model (or a limited edition F707)...I would be the first to buy.
